Texas A&M Vs. SC State: Aggies Up 49-7 At Half

The Texas A&M Aggies used a huge second quarter to bury the South Carolina State Bulldogs, as the Aggies have taken a 49-7 lead into halftime in College Station on Saturday night.

After a pedestrian first quarter in which Texas A&M took a 14-7 lead, the Aggies took control on both the arm and the legs of quarterback Johnny Manziel. The freshman signal-caller opened the quarter with rushing touchdowns of 39 and 20 yards. He then followed the runs up with two touchdown passes: a 30-yard score to Kenric McNeal, and a 37-yard strike to Uzoma Nwachukwu.

As if that wasn't enough, the Aggies made it a 35-point quarter when Ben Malena tacked on a 50-yard touchdown scamper.

Manziel finished the half going 15-20 for 174 yards and three touchdowns through the air, with 78 yards and two more touchdowns on the ground. The Aggies outgained South Carolina State 347 yards to 90 in the half.
